There have not been any deductions at all ... the confusion lies in the calculation of Nibs. We have made it easier to accumulate more Nibs to make up for the difference that you thought there was. In the end, it's the exact same, though  Let me know if that does not make sense.No i think im with you Jason, thanks.

I'll wait and see, but I have a bad feeling, that this booster system will drop if you don't get the same amount of nibs each week, making us small players getting less in the end. Sorry, to be an arse again, but as others have pointed out, I can't find any infos on how that booster works. If I understand it correctly it can go up and down, depending on how much you play. So again, the little player will suffer. The player who can't put in the same amount of playing time as the big guns. As it is now, I get $0,20 more for 20 Nibs as before, but will it stay that way? I'm not sure :)

DonTbeatme: We have made it easier to earn Poker Nibs therefore you current 0.19$(with booster) is the exact same thing as the old 0.20$/Nib

MichFran: Its all based on your level a play or if you are on a custom plan. If you are on a custom plan you will be getting what you custom plan is.

NinjaZ: Have you at least take a look at the promotion or even better try it before making such statement? Anyway, as I have told many times already we do welcome critics but please bring some ideas/suggestions with it to make it better just tell us you don't like it or etc without bring anything doesn't help the community in any ways. Thank you for your understanding.

steel69: Minimum payment is still the same as before.

play3r211: It should have been fixed, if not email us.

Let me know if that does not make sense.

Sorry Jason,but i dont understand some things.

1.What is the tier system.Someone else asked and you didnt answer.Is it the levels you reach,as in "copper""bronze""ruby" ect.?

2.I too was "deducted" from .20/nib to .19/nib. How is that not a deduction?I can follow my payback and it clearly shows i am not making as much.So your answer makes no sense to me.

3.Tell me and everyone,how is it now easier to accumulate nibs?

4.Bring back the nib accumulations from weeks past,as in the past year, as we had access to before.Tell me how to acess this information.Now it completely starts over on August 1st..

5.My personal oppinion on the payback payday changes is "rediculous".It makes no difference whatsoever,what day of the week the payback occurs......But  the hype over that makes for a good smokescreen!!!!!!

Plotbob,

Sorry for not answering all the questions ... I was tired, it was late, something :) Anyway, I'll try again...

1.What is the tier system.Someone else asked and you didnt answer.Is it the levels you reach,as in "copper""bronze""ruby" ect.?

the Tier system is for members that do not have a Custom Payback plan. I'm assuming you do since you're a long-time active member but if you do not, you will see the Tier on the Poker Payback page where you can earn more than the bottom level. LIke I said, I don't think you'll see it since you're already on a custom plan.

2.I too was "deducted" from .20/nib to .19/nib. How is that not a deduction?I can follow my payback and it clearly shows i am not making as much.So your answer makes no sense to me.

The old .20/nib plan is the same as the new .19/nib. The difference is in the rate you earn Nibs now. They are faster to accumulate since we changed the algorithm. If you still think there is a discrepancy let us know. 

3. Tell me and everyone,how is it now easier to accumulate nibs?

The fomula we use to calculate Poker Nibs has been modified. I cannot reveal the exact formula due to policy but you will see it in your stats I'm sure :)

4.Bring back the nib accumulations from weeks past,as in the past year, as we had access to before.Tell me how to acess this information.Now it completely starts over on August 1st..

Because of the changes in reporting that we're using now, it's not a good use of development resources to add this past activity interface. However, if you want to see it just contact support and we can easily send you any reports you want, in addition to verifying that the new plan is working as it should for you. We're here to satisfy you :)

5.My personal oppinion on the payback payday changes is "rediculous".It makes no difference whatsoever,what day of the week the payback occurs......But  the hype over that makes for a good smokescreen!!!!!!

I think and hope you'll change your mind on that soon. It does not change anything for you other than the dates you get paid. The amounts will be the same. What it does do is make it 100x easier for us to administer the payments so they are not paid 3 days after the "end of the week" anymore. They will be faster. And, at the end of the month we will have a clean end date (for accounting reasons) and a clean start date. So, I hope you can appreciate these improvements. We already can.

If you have any questions, let us know. I'm sure others benefit from reading the answers to your great questions here so they are all welcome.

Im not pissed at all to be honest =) I suggest you to read this entire thread:

http://www.pokerinside.com/forums/announcements-1/change-in-freerolls-starting-aug-8-3866976.html

It has already been discussed. I don't think your statement reflect the majority but more likely your own personal situation/opinion. Sometimes we have to put ourselves it other people shoes to see things differently.

Looking forward to have some constructive posts with you, just like with MichFran we had similar discussion and now we are moving forward and its great hope it will do the same with you.

I"m  on a custom plan and was skeptical at first on how the "Booster" would effect my Poker Payback. Although I don"t understand everything,like how the percentage of my Booster was reached,I do believe that this new system is better than the old one.To give you a idea on how much the change is,,so far this week I have collected 100 Nibs,the difference on 100 Nibs from the old system is a little over $2 on the 100 Nibs.Though its not a huge sum,it is in our favour. Therefore we should"nt complain about stuff that is given to us for free.In my opinion P.I has constantly moved forward with the emphsis on rewarding its active members and free sponsorships for new players.I been here for four years and never had a problem that was"nt dealt with in a quick professional manner.Good customer service and great rewards keep me loyal..Great job on the improvements,keep up the good work!
